Gay, Single, and Sad 10 May 2007

Why Can't I Find a Lover? 24 April 2007
By K. Peoples - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I usually agree with Paul Minifri's reviews, but I don't entirely agree with him on this one. Mann is clearly an incredibly talented writer; his characterizations in this novel are good, it's just that the major characters are all flawed. And in this novel, all the flaws come out all over the place. Henry IS clearly a whiner ("why can't I find someone who loves me?" we've all wondered that, unless/until finding one's own partner). Jeff is a slut (though he actually shows some strength of character in this one). Lloyd is too preachy (and has his own slut hidden inside). Still, except that Henry's whines get to the reader at times, they're reasonably likeable protagonists and this reader rooted for them to get it all together. Paul's comment that Henry's self-realization came too quickly IS accurate and is the main reason that I gave the book four stars instead of five (that and I got tired of Henry's whines late in the book).

Mann should have stopped while he was ahead... 29 July 2007
By Paul Rybarczyk - Published on
Format: Hardcover
because this book, the third in a series featuring the same characters in a Provincetown setting, is terrible! The main character is a whining bore and there are many hackneyed "philisophical" conversations on love, relationships, life, etc. Characters in their 30's are worried about getting "old". Henry is so dumb he can't see the obvious "secrets" of Gale, a man he is trying to date, and of JR--a nephew of Henry's friend--who is afraid to admit he's straight. "I promise I'll try to be gay," says the nephew! Stupid! Scenes from the marriage of Jeff and Lloyd interspersed with lyrics from the song "When I fall in love, it will be forever.." are laughingly trite and made me want to gag. I couldn't believe this actually made it into print. It was like a very bad movie. And of course, JR, the kid, suddenly changes his mind and agrees to be ring bearer for the wedding of Jeff and Lloyd at just the right moment! A big disappointment.

Mann Not At His Best ~ 6 Oct 2007
By Guy V. De Rosa - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had read the first two installments of the P-Town Trilogy, "Men from the Boys" and "Where the Boys Are". Unfortunately, the first two titles of the series far surpassed this new title. Mann is one of the better writers of this genre, and I would love to see him get back to the writing he did on his initial efforts. I am glad that I read this one as it continues the saga of the characters, Jeff, Lloyd, Henry etc. They are well written characters as well. However, this story was not one of my favorites. If you have previously read the other novels that are a part of the trilogy, go ahead and read this one, but you'll be somewhat disappointed. However, if you haven't read the previous novels, don't bother with this one as it doesn't stand on it's own merit. The hottest thing about this one was the cover photo.

third time not so much the charm 11 Mar 2008
By B.A. Wall - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've read the first two volumes of this series and enjoyed them to a point, but this time around, eh, not so much. The lead character at times grew extremely irritating, I kind of wanted to reach through the book and slap him as he seemed to whine whine and whine through numerous pages. A person like that you reach a point with and just have had enough and don't care anymore. I finished the book at least, which isn't saying a whole lot.
